Louisville Zoo Tram

Is the tram free?

This is a FREE service, donations are appreciated but not required.

Is the tram a tour?

The tram is not a tour but a means of transportation to areas of the Zoo.
Due to the tram’s limited capacity (6 – 12 guests), the tram may not be able to give complete rides around the Zoo.

Who can ride the tram?

The tram is available for all Zoo guests. We offer an accessible tram to guests with mobility issues. Please let the tram operator know if you need assistance.

Where do I board the tram and how long is the route?

The tram makes stops at marked locations throughout the Zoo (at the front plaza, behind the elephant habitat, by the Glacier Run entrance, next to Kooka Koolers by the Splash Park, and across from the Ropes Course). The tram follows a specific route and travels from Africa toward the Islands. The tram takes approximately 20 minutes to make a full loop through the Zoo.

When is the tram closed?

The tram begins operations at 10:00 a.m. and beings its final loop 30 minutes before the Zoo closes. The tram runs daily from mid-March to mid-October and is subject to change without notice. The tram operates during inclement weather.
